Gone Fishing and Eating too!

The Serb husband of a friend paid us a visit last Monday. An unexpected visit that eventually turned into sheer bliss. We invaded a neighbor's pond and we were lucky enough to catch a 7-kilo pangasius/cream dory. It was indeed a prized catch since it served as manna for seven hungry eaters later :-D

From the pond to the pan!
filleted cream dory fried to perfection ( we had two big bowls of this fare :-D)

another dish we made was paksiw
( a traditional filipino recipe with the fish and vinegar as main ingredients )
truly mouth watering!

The Serbian who got his first taste of real filipino dish couldn't help it but exclaim, yummy!

My First Boodle Fight

According to Urban Dictionary website, boodle fight is a military style of eating where long tables are prepared and food are on top of the banana leaves. Viands and rice ready to eat using your bare hands, jugs of water are prepared on the side to wash hands before the "eating combat". With the signal to start the boodle fight, everyone aims for his/her position.

I had my first taste of this so called boodle fight during the 78th DOLE Anniversary celebration last December. True enough, it was so exciting and I find it very heartwarming to see colleagues eating while sharing stories and a good laugh together.
If there will be another fight like this in the near future, I'll gladly grab the chance and again enjoy the fare to be laid out before us.
